Dr. Euclides Gonçalves is a social anthropologist and director at Kaleidoscopio – Research in Public Policy and Culture.  His research focuses on governance, bureaucratic processes and political rituals. His latest work looked at how in the context of the justice sector reform, citizens and government officials in Mozambique produce and appropriate documents to settle everyday disputes and promote their own interests. His new project looks at the life of identity and bureaucratic documents and how citizens and bureaucrats use these to creatively navigate between formal and informal bureaucratic processes. Recent publications include an article in African Affairs “Orientações superiores: Time and bureaucratic authority in Mozambique.”
